Greetings. I'm an illustrator originally from the Welsh borders. I often explore narratives surrounding science and mythology.

I graduated from Falmouth University with a First, and I'm currently doing a postgraduate MA Art & Science at Central St Martins, London.  I'm exploring the intersections of science communication and visual communication, looking specifically at the development of antibiotics, and futures in antimicrobial resistance. I'm particularly focusing on leafcutter ants and the antibiotics strain of fungus streptomyces.

I like how illustration is a tool for disseminating science knowledge shaping futures thinking and speculative design, across audiences.
